Mobile News Increasingly Taking Bite Out of Print Newspaper Subscriptions


May 2013 -- According to a recent RJI-DPA Mobile Media Research Project survey, 80% of U.S. adults used at least one mobile media device in their daily lives in the past 7 days. That represents a 13-percentage-point increase since last year when the quarterly study found that 67% of all respondents between the ages of 18 and 88 had used mobile media devices.
Conducted by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) at the University of Missouri, the intended purpose of the ongoing RJI-DPA mobile media news consumption surveys is to gain insights into who uses mobile media (smartphones, tablets, and e-readers) and how their uses for news may change over time.
